The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the most amazing natural landmarks of the world. It’s one of the most impressive glaciers for sure, the size of which amazes every visitor. We were especially lucky when we visited the Perito Moreno glacier, as there was a sunny day, and sometimes pieces of ice fell from the glacier. We spent there few hours waiting for a bigger chunk to fall and our effort was rewarded, as we saw a large block of ice to fall. It was an impressive phenomenon both for our eyes and our ears, as the ice fall was accompanied by an ear-piercing sound, and it perturbed the water around. We were able to both photograph and record it, and now we share it with you.
